This Ryokan is very special. Everything about it is done with intention and thought. The service, food, room and staff were impeccable. It is pricey but worth every penny. I continue to dream of being there. It surpassed all my expectations and will definitely try...More
When you come to Kyoto, you have to stay at a ryokan, it's part of the experience. I was trying to decide between here and Tawaraya, both are very well known, and actually across the street from each other. We ended up with Hiiragiya because...More
We had the wonderful opportunity to make a reservation for a night in Hiiragiya and it indeed remains a memorable venue to stay. While the price itself remains on the high end, with the quality of meals, service and accomodation, I would gladly pay for...More
The last two nights of our journey through Japan were to be a highlight by staying in Hiiragyra ryokan. Our expectations were surpassed. Very personal hospitality, the beauty of an old Japanese building, and exquisite Japanese food served in a traditional way, all created a...More

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Your best bet is to email Hiiragiya directly and ask for the rates for the dates you plan to go. They vary based on the season and whether you're staying in the old or new wing. Rates are priced per person and usually include dinner and breakfast. Dinners are either kaiseki or shabu shabu. Breakfast can either be Japanese or Western. Book well in advanced because they only have 28 rooms and reservations go quickly. Good luck! I loved my stay here as well as the warm staff.
